Mamma Mia! Is Returning To Netflix

Mamma Mia! Is Returning To Netflix

Lockdown is raging on, with many of us turning to television to keep us entertained while pubs, clubs and restaurants remain closed.

Netflix has been a godsend throughout these troubling times, providing us with hours and hours of entertainment while we laze about on our sofas.

And now, the streaming giant is adding a stack of new films and old classics for us to binge on in the evenings, with feel-good hit Mamma Mia! returning to the platform.

The 2008 singalong film with an impressive ensemble cast, starring Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried and Colin Firth, among others, follows 20-year-old bride Sophie Sheridan (Seyfried) after she invites the three men who she thinks could be her father to her wedding on an idyllic Greek island, much to mother Donna's shock.

Like the stage play it is based off, Mamma Mia! is punctuated by music from Swedish supergroup ABBA, with absolute bangers such as Dancing Queen, Voulez-vous and Super Trouper all featuring.

Mamma Mia! has become a cult classic since it was first released, with Pierce Brosnan's singing now infamous amongst viewers.

Its immense popularity saw a sequel, titled Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, released in 2018. Both a prequel and a sequel, the plot is set after the events of the previous film, and is intersected with flashbacks to Donna's youth in 1979, with some scenes from the two tenses mirroring each other.

Other films that have now been added to Netflix's already-impressive roster includes raunchy 2005 comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin, starring Steve Carell, as well as 2004's Along Came Polly, with Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston.

Coming-of-age film American Graffiti, as well as 1983's Scarface and alien comedy Paul starring Simon Pegg, are also now available to watch.
